Pankaj Kedia, senior director for product marketing at Qualcomm, said the new watch is built on a blending of "technology, fashion and fitness".

With that processor, Fossil says that we can expect a 24 hour lifespan from the Sport's 350mAh battery, which is larger than some previous smartwatch models the company has offered. But the Sport runs on the new 3100 SoC, which should provide noticeable improvements in battery life and performance.

Not only is it the lightest watch Fossil's ever made, but thanks to its aluminum and nylon case, Fossil says that the Fossil Sport is the "lightest smartwatch to date". There's also a new battery saving mode, bringing an additional two days of telling the time in an "ambient mode".

Also packed inside the Fossil Sport are a heart-rate sensor, GPS, and NFC for Google Pay support.
